    Admissions

    We welcome you to visit our school before enrolling your child. Please contact the school office to arrange an appointment where a member of staff will show you around.

    Two Year Old Provision

    We provide an excellent start for early learners in the 2 year old provision based within our school. Please visit this link to see if you qualify for 15 hours of free child care through Hackney Education. If you meet the criteria and are eligible you will be issued with a reference number which you can bring to the school office to arrange an admission into this provision.


    Nursery Admissions

    Children who are 3 years old are able to make an application to the Nursery in our school. A place in the Nursery does not guarantee a place in the main school but children meeting the Local Authority’s entry requirements will move on to the reception class. Visit the Hackney Education website to check your eligibility for free childcare


    Reception Admissions

    This admissions process is for children aged 3 and 4 (born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019) who will start reception class at primary school in September 2023. All parents should apply by 15 January 2023, even if your child is already in the nursery class.
